State Administration Centre Fire
« on: August 03, 2009, 08:50:09 AM »

A CHAIN reaction of small fires threatened to send Premier Mike Rann's office up in flames this morning.

Automatic sprinklers eventually averted disaster at the State Administration Centre on Victoria Square about 12.45am.

Fire authorities said the emergency cystem had stopped what could easily have become a major blaze.

Metropolitan Fire Crews were called to the building when the main power feed malfunctioned.

The power cable overheated and molten copper splattered, setting cabling on fire.

This in turn set alight a florescent light, which dropped into a rubbish bin in the basement.

The fire in the bin then set off the automatic sprinkler system and alerted fire fighters.

Damage which was confined to the basement and the cost is estimated to be about $100,000.
